Developed from the 1998 Project Vantage concept car, the V12 Vanquish entered production in 2001. The Vanquish marked a large step in the company’s engineering featuring a bonded aluminum chassis combined with many pieces of traditional craftsmanship ushering in a new era for Aston Martin.
V12 Vanquish featured a body tub made from extruded aluminum and Carbon Fiber with extensive use of more Carbon Fibre and composite materials throughout the crash structure of the car. This extremely rigid and safe body-shell was then clothed in hand-finished, Superformed aluminium panels. Underneath the handmade bonnet sat a 460bhp version of the Aston Martin V12 engine, delivering its power via a 6-speed manual gearbox controlled by an electro-hydraulic paddle shift gear change.
In 2002 the V12 Vanquish became the latest Aston Martin to be driven by James Bond. This special car was painted in Tungsten Silver and was fitted with a number of non-standard options including rockets, guns, ejector seat, and an invisible ‘cloaking device’ – all provided courtesy of ‘Q-branch’ of course.
Hand-built at the famous Newport Pagnell factory, just 1489 examples of the 460bhp Vanquish were constructed before being replaced by the more powerful V12 Vanquish S in 2005.
As the production life of the Vanquish drew close to the end a very special limited edition of 50 cars were built. The Vanquish Ultimate featured a unique metallic black paint finish and special trim and fittings.
Completion of the last ‘Ultimate’ in July 2007 not only marked the end of a successful career for the Vanquish but also over 50 years of Aston Martin car production at Newport Pagnell.
